Summary
During the summer of 1936, Isobel Howard, a milliner in a small mining town, is drawn into a friendship with the sophisticated Cathryn Malley from Chicago. Almost unwittingly, Isobel takes on the role of accomplice in an affair Cathryn is having. Years later, as Isobel is dying, her son untangles the mystery of the lovers' sudden disappearance.
Critique
Thought provoking. Very atmospheric. The author's sense of time and place is flawless.
